Recall group says they have the signatures to recall Holperin

MADISON (WAOW)--Recall petitions will be filed against State Senator Jim Holperin, according to a press release from recall organizer Kim Simac.

Simac says the group Northwoods Patriots has collected 21,000 signatures.

Holperin was one of 14 Democratic senators who fled the state in order to stall a controversial vote, stripping public workers of their collective bargaining privileges.

Simac says the group exceeded the 15,960 signatures needed to trigger a recall election. According to the release, the group will submit the petitions to the Government Accountability Board on Thursday.
